Dry skin on the face: what to do

Dry skin on the face: what to do Dry skin? Not sure what to do anymore? Have you tried a thousand treatments to no avail? In this article you will find some useful tips and valid products to say goodbye to dehydrated skin Did you know that the skin is the “largest” and “largest” organ of the whole organism? And not only that, because it is of extraordinary importance for our well-being: it protects us in a unique and irreplaceable way from external agents and gives us a healthy and luminous appearance. Unfortunately, dealing with dry, cracked and dehydrated skin is a rather common problem, both in men and women of any age, and is the manifestation of the malfunctioning of this protective barrier, as well as a precious and fundamental natural ally. Skin dehydration can affect any part of the body, but it is mainly that of the face that is most affected, also because it is more sensitive and in need of special care and attention. The dryness of the skin of the face can derive from several factors, of completely different origin: climatic agents (prolonged exposure to UV rays, cold, air conditioning, heating or wind); genetic predisposition; aging; taking certain medications (e.g. hormones, diuretics); pathologies (eg psoriasis, hypothyroidism, liver cirrhosis, allergies); stress; aggressive cosmetic treatments or unsuitable for the type of skin. Consulting an expert dermatologist can certainly be a first step both to trace the triggering cause and to find the best therapy to quickly resolve the issue. At the same time, it is possible to do it yourself (even comfortably at home) by paying attention to some daily precautions: adequately hydrate the entire body, taking at least 2 liters of water a day; protect the skin from UV rays (both natural and artificial); keep the skin soft with suitable products; install environmental humidifiers, in order to keep the temperature neither too hot nor too cold; apply specific products for dry skin with moisturizing and emollient properties; keep stress at bay, as anxieties and tensions only negatively affect the health and appearance of the skin; before going to sleep, apply a generous layer of nourishing and protective cream all over the face; perform a face scrub, from time to time, to eliminate dead cells deposited on the superficial layer of the skin; cleanse the face with a specific cleansing milk for dry skin, dabbing with a cotton pad, avoiding rubbing. Including these small actions within your daily skincare can be a valid contribution in keeping the skin of the face healthy, nourished and radiant.

The best remedies for dry skin on the face

Together with the habits listed above, it is possible to proceed with some very simple remedies to improve the appearance of your face by intervening on excessive dryness of the skin. Here are the best ones to adopt right away:

Mild face cleanser and soap

Before going to sleep and in the morning as soon as you wake up, it is a good idea to wash your face thoroughly to remove any impurities. It can happen, however, to use excessively aggressive soaps and detergents, which only increase the dryness of the skin. The advice is to opt for a sulfate-free cleanser and a specific soap for the face that manages to keep the natural pH of the skin balanced.

Avoid water that is too hot

Washing the face with water that is too hot is never a suitable choice, as the steam tends to make the skin much more sensitive. All the better to prefer lukewarm water, to test with a finger before rinsing your face.

Moisturize the skin daily

The skin on the face must be moisturized every day to avoid becoming more dehydrated than necessary. To prevent this, it is recommended to avoid creams and products based on alcohol, perfumes, petrolatum, dioxane, SLS, parabens, DEA, MEA and TEA. On the contrary, instead, you should opt for creams and cosmetics based on natural ingredients such as aloe vera, coconut oil and shea butter, or nourishing and antioxidant elements such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid. A good example is given by the Hydra Fresh 24h Beauty Clinic Moisturizing Face Cream, made with vegetable collagen, vitamin B3, provitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid. Suitable for all skin types, its light texture guarantees hydration for up to 24 hours and a healthy, radiant-looking face.

Remove dry skin

Cell turnover involves the deposit of dead cells on the superficial layer of the skin and that of the face is certainly not far behind. To avoid clogging of the pores and the appearance of unsightly dark spots, the secret lies in carrying out a good exfoliation on a regular basis using the most suitable products, such as: cleansing brushes; face scrub; exfoliating cosmetics, such as the Beauty Clinic Elixir of Purity which, with its formula rich in fruit extracts, gives the skin softness and silkiness. Furthermore, it is possible to resort to chemical exfoliants based on two miraculous ingredients: alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), which remove dead cells present on the surface of the skin of the face; beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), which penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to eliminate dead cells stuck in ports. Both contribute to cell renewal and to the maintenance of soft and supple skin. In this regard, read our article on how and why to exfoliate the skin even in winter!

Prevent and slow down aging

Over time, the dryness and damage caused by ultraviolet rays not only encourage the appearance of wrinkles, but also the loss of volume, density and radiance of the facial skin. This is why aging skin requires even more constant and deep hydration and a valid help can come from the application of specific products, such as the Gold Pro-Age Beauty Clinic Mask: its formulation enriched with hyaluronic acid, extract of tomato and cherry blossoms, prebiotics and probiotics have an antioxidant action and restore a more nourished and revitalized skin. And to complete in beauty and obtain a super luminous appearance, a few drops of Beauty Clinic Illuminating Face Serum is just what you need: the mix of vitamins and hyaluronic acid makes the skin softer, more compact and luminous with each application. Take care of the skin on your face by following these simple tips and you will see that day after day the results obtained will simply leave you speechless!
